Now I have never been one who steers away from interesting ingredients. My black bean brownies created a lot of buzz! Who knew black beans could taste so good, right? Well hold on! In this recipe, I am using chick peas as a base and boy is this recipe ever delicious! I came across this recipe from one of our readers. Sharon Baker Burress sent me an invitation to Pinterest (You can only join by invitation. If anyone would like to check out this community, let me know in the comments and I will send you an invitation). Pinterest….what was that? Pinterest is a really neat online community where you share your favorite things. Sounded really neat. So I joined this community and the pinning began! After playing around a few days, I came across some really neat sites. This recipe and photo is adapted from Wit & Whistle‘s site. This site was created by Amanda Wright and has a little of everything! I changed the recipe a little to make it a bit healthier. Wow, now these are great. You all must try this one!
